Thermoguard Thermoproof Exterior Fluid is a penetrating fire proof fluid for wood.
Fire protection for bare timber sleepers, fencing, cladding and decking.
Durable clear fire and flame resistant fluid for external and internal wood. Weather resistant. Water-based, non flammable formula enables safe application by untrained and inexperienced users.
How it Works
Penetrates deep into porous wood. When exposed to fire Thermoguard Thermoproof Exterior Fluid creates an inert layer within the wood’s surface which insulates the wood from fire, preventing flamespread.

Limitations (Stained, Varnished or Painted Wood)
- For treatment with Thermoguard Thermoproof Exterior Fluid to be effective it needs to be able to penetrate the wood.

New Fire Regulations & Tests Explained

The new BS EN tests also monitor -
- Smoke & Gas “s” – s1 + s2 are none or very low & compliant, s3 = moderate smoke, s4 = heavy smoke.
- Flaming Droplets or Airborne particulates – dO is none, d1 = low, d2 = moderate, d3 = high levels.

Hello! I am looking at fireproof coatings and in order to satisfy my building inspector, I need a certificate to show one of your coatings/impregnators have a certificate for having been tested on oak. These are the two products I'm looking at: https://www.rawlinspaints.com/home/fire-retardant-paints/timber-plasterboard/128-zeroflame-fire-retardant-treatment.html https://www.rawlinspaints.com/home/fire-retardant-paints/fabric-treatments/2298-thermoguard-thermoproof-exterior-fluid.html?search_query=thermoguard+exterior+fluid&results=1 Can you please confirm if there is a test certificate on oak available for either of these products please? The Zeroflame text specifically mentions it has been tested on oak as well as other timbers. Is it possible to get hold of a copy of that certificate please? Many thanks in advance. Adam Lay
Copies of the testing on oak have now been emailed to you.
